The Shins – “Simple Song”

James Mercer’s reconstituted Shins are getting ready to release Port Of Morrow, their first album since 2007’s Wincing The Night Away, and they’ve finally let us hear a song from that album. “Simple Song” is a chugging midtempo joint with huge ahh-ahh backing vocals, and it more or less lives up to its name. Mercer, I’d wager, has been spending some time with the first two Band Of Horses albums lately. Give it a listen below.

Port Of Morrow is out in March on Columbia/Aural Apothecary.
